School Policies

  • Our current studio policy is that students are dropped off at the main entrance and picked up at the east end door. Parents and families are  invited in during scheduled observation weeks and end of semester showcases.
  • All students must be potty trained and able to dress themselves. Students should arrive dressed and ready to go before being dropped off at the studio.
  • We reserve the right to cancel a class due to low enrollment (3 student minimum).
  • No food, snacks, or drinks besides water in the building! Please ensure water bottles are tightly sealed, and no straws please.
  • If classes need to be canceled for any reason (weather, Covid, etc.) you will be notified via email and we will post on our social media pages.
  • If your child is sick, please keep them home so we can all stay healthy. We are happy to help you schedule a makeup class at the same or a lower level. 

Dress Code

  • Everyone’s hair (boys and girls) must be pulled back off the face and neck for all classes. Please no toys, jewelry or accessories.

  • Do not wear dance shoes outdoors, this will damage them and will damage our dance floors.

  • Please mark all dance wear, shoes and personal items with your child’s name.

  • Cell phones must be turned off or on silent in their bags if a dancer must bring it to the studio.
